Adobe's Creative Cloud Desktop app, once a drop-down only for downloading and updating Adobe apps, is being converted into an asset library. The new desktop experience provides tutorials for all apps in one hub. It essentially looks like the current Creative Cloud website, but is now in the form of a desktop app.
The app works much the same, but is divided into a full-screen view. Adobe wants everything to be available from one source in Creative Cloud, so users can access it whenever they need to update apps or search for content such as brushes, fonts, and pictures. With Creative Cloud Libraries, users can access assets from anywhere (an important feature as the company continues to release iPad and Android apps like Fresco) and share these libraries with team members.
It's a bit of a surprise that the Creative Cloud app was not a desktop full-screen experience before. As Adobe develops the upcoming Photoshop on the iPad and the Project Aero AR app, it makes sense to create a consolidated creative hub for the ever-growing number of Adobe apps.
The redesign begins today in France and Germany, tomorrow in Japan, and will be rolled out worldwide in the US and other regions the following week. More information about the redesign can be found in the Adobe blog here.
Yes, some customers can now use a completely redesigned desktop app for the "Creative Cloud". You'll find a new way to manage and discover apps, learning resources, centralized management of your libraries, and more.
